Packing my bags for Sydney!
As a student of International Business at Maastricht University it is obligatory to go abroad for half a year - which is also one reason why I started studying there in the first place. I decided to go to Sydney, for many reasons: Its warm, beautiful, diverse and it is suuuper far away!
I have never been away from home for such a long time and also never had to decide what clothes to take with me for 6 months. To be honest, it is really not easy to do so, especially when you only have one suitcase with 30kg allowed to take with you. So, I had to make many trade-offs...
Fortunately, summer clothes are very light, so I managed to squeeze a decent choice of clothes into my suitcase. Some of my essentials were for example, the Ray-Ban Sunglasses which can be bought at Het Huis Eye Wish Opticiens, a nice pair of jeans shorts, lace-up sandals, some cute tops and light jackets with boho-summer feeling! I will show you in my next post, straight from Sydney, how this looks like.
Oh, and not to forget... I bought a lovely silver ring from Siebel that I will always wear during my travels and that should remind me of the great time in Maastricht.
